Hornstull is an area in western Södermalm, Stockholm. Hornstull is actually the name of where the streets Hornsgatan and Långholmsgatan intersect. Up to the early 19th century it was also a city toll ("tull" means "toll").

Hornstull also has a metro station, which opened on April 5, 1964.

Two of the subdivisions of Hornstull are Drakenberg, and Högalid, after which the neighborhood school (Högalidsskolan) and church (Högalidskyrkan) are named.

A weekend market has been held regularly at Hornstull, under the name "Street". Many of the merchants at the market sell their own individual fashion designs and creations. Street includes a restaurant, coffee house and a night club.
